| Gravitational Waves from Black Holes - NASA A gravitational wave is a theoretical fluctuation in the curvature of spacetime caused by the movement of incredibly massive objects. In this animation, two massive black holes orbit each other, creating gravitational waves. Note: This animation shows two black holes orbiting each other, producing gravity waves.

| Millisecond Pulsar with Gravitational Waves - NASA A pulsar is generally believed to be a rapidly rotating neutron star that emits pulses of radiation (such as x-rays and radio waves) at known regular intervals. A millisecond pulsar is one with a rotational period in the range of 1-10 milliseconds. As the pulsar picks up speed through accretion, it distorts due to subtle changes in the crust. Such slight distortion is enough to produce gravitational waves... Keywords: HDTV, Neutron Star, Astrophysics, Gravitational Waves, Pulsar Downloads: 150 | |

| Merging Black Holes - NASA A black hole is a massive object whose gravitational field is so intense that no light (electromagnetic radiation) can escape it. When two orbiting black holes merge, a massive amount of energy is released in the form of jets. Meanwhile, the movement of these massive bodies disturbs the fabric of space-time around them, sending ripples of gravitational waves radiating outward. These waves are predicted by Einstein's theory of general relativity, but have yet to be directly detected... Keywords: Galaxy, HDTV, Black Hole, Astrophysics, Gravitational Waves Downloads: 400 | |
